Bif Naked, popular Canadian rock band is scheduled to rock the Esplanade June 22nd, 2009 at 8:00PM. The show will be all ages and will cost $32 a ticket. I also wanted to mention how illogical it is to have these kinds of shows at the Esplanade, I mean, there’s no standing row, it’s all seated. Prepare to “rock out” or dance whilst sitting! But all that aside, it’s nice to see a band like this coming to Medicine Hat as always. Beth Torbert and her band, Bif Naked has been touring to promote her newest album entitled “The Promise”.

I started listening to Bif Naked back when she/they released “I Bificus” in 1999 when I heard the song “Spaceman” plastered all over Much Music at the time. I was also into a lot of other rock bands at that time as well like The Tea Party (ugh) and Smashing Pumpkins so I was digging Bif Naked as well. In the recent years I haven’t really kept up with her music other than listening to the casual single off of each new album. Videos and links supplied after the jump.

    I could never actually imagine going to a show and sitting down, especially to watch a band that walks around on the stage and uses their stage presence to get the crowd hyped up. Seems kind of counter-hype to have to sit down. I guess that it’s not like Medicine Hat is big enough to actually have a bigger venue for bigger bands.

    In the fall when I saw Bad Religion, Greg Graffin said maybe they’ll start going to Regina on their Canadian tours.

    Well, we do have the Medicine Hat Arena and the Stampede Grounds for the larger shows. For example, that’s where Buckcherry (and guests) played as well as Finger Eleven (and guests) months and months ago. I guess they have some type of estimation system in place to gauge how many people will be going to a show based on popularity and/or genre of music.

    When we saw David Usher at the Esplanade I rather enjoyed the concept of sitting. It’s like all the screaming and people standing in front of me didn’t ruin the performance for me.

    Pure preference, I estimate that mostly people who like to dance at concerts or people who like to think they’re cool by jumping in a mosh pit are the ones who care to stand at a concert.
